Estate Planning & Probate in Miami-Dade County

My name is Susan E. Durre, and as a Miami-Dade County probate attorney with over 30 years of experience, I am confident that I have the credentials and qualifications you are looking for. I care deeply about my clients and always take the time to listen to their concerns and goals and from there I create a legal strategy aimed at helping them achieve their hopes and dreams. I am fluent in both English and Spanish, this way I can provide clear advice that is understandable in your native language.

Your estate consists of everything that you own and this includes your home, other properties, and cash in bank accounts, life insurance, personal belongings, automobiles, furniture, jewelry, artwork and collectibles. When you take into consideration all that you have now and the things that you are likely to accumulate in your future, you have an estate. An estate plan allows you to be in control of how your assets are distributed and not the state.

You probably already have a good idea of who you want to receive certain items, but without an estate plan in place, you don't have a say in the matter. In addition to determining who gets what and when, an estate plan can name a guardian for your minor children, it can plan for incapacity, it can allow you to name a personal representative of your choosing to manage your estate when you're gone, and it can maximize the value of your estate while reducing taxes.

I can help you with:

Have you been appointed a personal representative?

Estate administration (probate) is a lengthy and complicated process which involves paying off all debts and paying taxes, and taking the remaining assets and distributing them among the beneficiaries. The personal representative must abide by Florida law and follow all orders of the court during the administration process. If a personal representative fails in their duty and harms the estate, he or she can be held legally liable for any damage they have caused.

With over 30 years of experience handling thousands of estate administrations, I am here to offer you the legal guidance you need to have a successful administration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I create a trust? You should create a trust for multiple reasons. Trusts can help you avoid certain types of taxes. If you create an irrevocable life insurance trust, for example, protects your death benefit proceeds from estate taxes. You may also be able to avoid the probate process by keeping certain property out of your estate. You can create certain conditions and terms for trusts, in order to protect your estate, as well. You can also leave money for charities and institutions in a trust, along with fund your child or grandchildren's education.
